WWE main roster member, and one-third of the Monday Night Raw commentary team Samoa Joe, spoke about his current role on the WWE commentary team today. During the interview with Sportskeeda, Joe gave some insight on his experience at the announce desk, and had this to say:
"You know, it's been a fun experience that you get to be the voice of RAW. Which I think is a rare opportunity that's afforded to very few people, and it's one that you know I've embraced and I've enjoyed. And, you know, like I said, I am not a commentator by trade. I just try to go out there and tell the people how I see things, and if they enjoy it, then I'm all the more happy for it."
The former NXT and WWE United States champion also gave an update on his in-ring return during the interview. The reason the Samoan Submission Machine found himself placed out of action is because of a freak head injury, which occurred during a commercial shoot. When giving an update on his status, Joe made it clear that there is no plan for him to return soon, and in fact, he’s hardly in a hurry. Joe explained:
"As far as the timetable, no. But I just want to reassure people that you know this point, WWE medical is doing the best for my health and my well-being, and I'm appreciative of it, so we're taking our time. We're making sure that I'm as healthy as I can be. And we are... Yeah, I think that's essentially it, you know, I'm not putting a timetable on it because the type of injury is not something that I want to rush, obviously, for obvious reasons. So, yeah, I mean, that's essentially the update”.
